Hi Denny,

Interesting project.
Why didn't you publish 140 billion triples, by publishing 10 Billion 
numbers, or 1.4 Trillion or 14 Trillion or ...?

Looks like you stopped at 1 Billion:

http://km.aifb.kit.edu/projects/numbers/index.php?number=999999999
http://km.aifb.kit.edu/projects/numbers/index.php?number=1000000000

I think if we go public with something like this we should stress the 
value for people instead of the sheer size.

Happy Easter to everybody,

Sören
